I have seen in my last 6 years of Agile work the challenges faced for adoption to Agile change from project to project. At times it was the experienced folks subconsciously following agile as if it is waterfall. Understanding of Refactoring and daily standup is tough one to Digest. The Author of this new book looks like has touched most of these problem aras. The Chapter i would be interested is �smells� It is a very general heading under crafting and adopting strategy.

The other part I have seen in agile is a strong need of support practice like coach, workshop etc. as mentioned in the book. I would like to know what are the authors thought around �gearing up business/customer for agile development�. As in case of agile, business involvement is more as compared to traditional methodologies.

(I have referred the table of contents from this location http://www.informit.com/store/product.aspx?isbn=0321514521 )

Hello Rajesh,
The Chapter i would be interested is �smells� It is a very general heading under crafting and adopting strategy.


Well, the part of the book that contains smells, is basically a catalog of common smells in organizations. If you download chapter 5 you will see smells mapped to practices that help alleviate them. Furthermore, each pattern has a 'smells' section that has common mistakes that many teams make - for an example check out the Done State pattern available on the Agile Journal.

I'm not quite sure I know what you mean, but I what I understand is "how do you interact with the business when you are gearing up for Agile?" If that is so, then you speak their language - speak of business value and results that you will deliver for them. That is *the* main thread in the book.
